Microphone Tips--Part 2 of 5
Microphone positioning is crucial to voice recognition and high-quality voice recording. An excellent microphone can make a horrible recording if worn incorrectly. Avoid breath sounds by placing your mike off to the side of your mouth, not directly in front. Never talk with the microphone directly against your lips; there should always be a small gap between your mouth and the mike.

For other positioning tips, read the documentation of the software package that came with your mike. Often you'll find a diagram showing the proper mike positioning for best performance.
